Kaahini was commissioned and developed by Red Ladder Theatre Company and toured nationally. It premiered at Bradford Theatre in the Mill, May 1997. The company wanted a play about identity that spoke specifically to young Asian women. The Birmingham Rep re-staged the play in 1998. The play was nominated for Best Children’s Theatre by the Writers Guild.
It was subsequently toured nationally by Red Ladder Theatre company in 2006 and published by Capercaille Books (2004).
